Ah! who against thy charms is proof?
Hymn 12. C. M.
And did my Sovereign die ?
For such a worm as I ?
He groan'd upon the tree?
And love beyond degree ! 3 Well might the sun in darkness hide,
And shut his glories in ; When Christ the mighty Maker died,
For man the creature's sin ?
While his dear cross appears ;
And melt mine eyes to tears.
The debt of love I owe :
Here, LORD, I give myself away;.
"Tis all that I can do.
Hymn 13. L. M.
O that I could at last submit,
To lay my soul at Jesus' feet! 2 Rest for my soul I long to find :
Saviour of all ! if mine thou art, Give me thy meek and lowly mind,
And stamp thine image on my heart. 3 Break off the yoke of inbred sin,
And fully set my spirit free;
Till I am wholly lost in thee. ,'.
Thy light and easy burden prove,
The labour of thy dying love. ': is 5 I would-but thou must give the power ;
My heart from every stain release ; Bring near, bring near the joyful hour,
And fill me with thy perfect peace. 6. Come, LORD! the drooping sinner cheer,
Nor let thy chariot-wheels delay :
My God, my Saviour, come away!
Hymn 14. C. M. N OD moves in a mysterious way,
U His wonders to perform; " ! • He plants his footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm... 2 Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never-failing skill,
And works his sovereign will. 3 Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take ;
The clouds ye so much dread
In blessings on your head." 4 Judge not the LORD by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace ;
He hides a smiling face... 5 His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour : ;
But sweet will be the flower. 6 Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain :
And he will make it plain.
